Patient : My 8 month old son found a very small piece of deodorant on the floor and put it in his mouth i caught him as soon as he put it in his mouth however im nt sure if he could have swalloed a little what should i do?
Deodorants are not poisonous, but they will irritate the mouth and can cause diarrhea when large amounts are eaten. If your son develops abdominal pain, irritability, loose stools, lack of alertness, rash or vomiting seek immediate medical help. You could also call local poison control centers if you have any questions about poisoning or poison prevention.
